In this case, an audit can be performed based off coding, claims, and mandatory cancer registry reporting to identify all patients diagnosed with cancer and a possible repeat of the test performed. A report can also be ran off of either the charge master or coding to identify patients who were tested and diagnosed as cancer-free to also retest. Based off both report (diagnosed as cancer and cancer-free) patients can be notified of the errors so they can seek additional testing to confirm their diagnosis.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
